Our Mission & Philosophy

Lighthouse Christian Academy of Merritt Island provides scholastic excellence in a loving environment through Christ-centered, Bible-based education. We are dedicated to helping students develop their individual and uniques gifts academically, spiritually and socially in a way that honors and glorifies God.

We believe that God equips each of us uniquely and specifically to fulfill his purpose. Our faculty strives to unlock the strength of each student academically, spiritually, physically and socially that will carry them throughout life.

Our concepts are based on the following laws of learning:

  • A child must be at a level were he can perform
  • He must have reasonable goals
  • His learning must be controlled and must be motivated
  • His learning must be measurable

Our program assures parents:

  • A solid mastery-based back to basics education for their children
  • A course of study diagnostically individualized to meet students specific needs and capabilities
  • A program incorporating scripture, Godly character building and wisdom principles
  • A curriculum using advanced computer technology to help ensure the finest education possible in today's high-tech climate

How these goals are accomplished:

  • Students are evaluated to determine at what levels they are working and if they have any learning gaps
  • Individualized curriculum plans are assembled at the level the student is currently functioning allowing them to advance at the pace best suited to their ability
  • Weekly goals are made to ensure progress and to show the student's advancements
  • Students are given assignments to complete and correct to ensure mastery of all concepts
  • After the completion of assignments each child is given a final evaluation to ensure retention
